they are from self-defense forces looking to russia for protection, but not members of the russian military. those are the outlines of the developments so far today. let's just listen to a little of what sergei lavrov had to say in mid drid. >> translator: i would to understand what you understand by pro russian forces. these are the forces of self-defense created by the residents of crimea. we did not order them. they didn't get any orders from us. as to the military personnel of the black sea fleet, they are in places of their dislocation, yes. some additional measures of extra vigilance were taken to provide the security of the troops of the police fleet. as our president said we will do everything not to let any bloodshed, not to any attempt at life and security of those who live in the ukraine including, of course, the citizens of the russian federation. >> reporter: sergei lavrov speaking in madrid. let's go to tom barge who sdwroins us now from madrid. was anything discussed about this outline plan about international monitors, tom? >> reporter: it's interesting, a small protest grou
they said that this is not app invasion, it's a protective defensive measure, and on land and at sea in the harbour, what they have down is surround places. that is not to say that they want to go in and have a fight. it's to stop what they would see as fascist elements from kiev or troops here controlled by fascist elements from kiev attacking the pro-russian majority civilian population. whether you believe it, because we have seen no sign of fascist elements here at all, and no sign of the ukrainian soldiers wanting to engage in a fight as evidence of the situation at the sevastopol airport. certainly the russians want to be seen here as nonaggressive. given that they have been approached by a group of ukrainians without arms, there's no way in the world they would have wanted to be seen to be firing on unarmed ukrainian soldiers. that would be disastrous for them. >> laurence lee reporting there from crimea. >> the united states and the european union are both considering sanctions against russia. what are they likely to comprise, and how much bite will they have. one of the russ
's been a meeting of defense ministers. obviously ukraine right on the borders of nato, on the borders of poland is a core challenge and worry for nato security. >> that concludes the public parts of our meeting. and i thank the media for their attendance. >> that's all we're going to see. we unfortunately arrived a bit late. normally these sessions happen behind closed doors. that was a very public piece of the meeting of defense ministers in brussels. we were talking about what's happening in bangkok. she's been indicted for alleged criminality in a rice scheme. >> reporter: this is the first time we have seen the prime minister's own supporters, and she has huge numbers of them outside bangkok, to carry out the same tactic being used by the anti-government movement. that movement has block aided ministries in central bangkok. they are using the same tactic against the building behind me, the anti-corruption commission. they sealed off the gate. they're taking a break. they are waiting for three cement trucks. they are going to solidly cement the gate. they argue, as does the prime m
the russian troops adopted what they would see entirely as defensive positions and having their photographs taken with pro-russian local and smoking cigarettes in many places and have not had clips loaded on their guns and they have been, i think, at pains to point out they don't want to be seen as an aggressive force equally. by the same token the body language and symbolism from the ukraine troops this morning was equally passive and one was a soviet flag from the second world war saying they fought against fascism but are no longer but carried a ukraine flag and the implication of that is they want to be see potentially being on the russian side but won't surrender and will not swear allegiance to the flag and there is not resistance going on but a sense of defiance as well. >> reporter: lawrence, thanks for keeping us up to date with the events in crimea and we will keep a close eye on things there. russia appears to be moving more military assets to the region and russian war ships passed through in istambul and saying they may go to ukraine and they are in ukraine by a lesser sense o
, was to enhance the defense of our military facilities because they are constantly receiving threats, and we were aware of the armed nationalists moving in. now, russia has well-trained, well-equipped, now additional 16,000 or more, and vladimir putin was worried about enhancing the defense of his military facilities because they were constantly receiving threats. there is something i'd like to stress, however, he goes on to say. obviously, what i am going to say now is not within my authority, and we do not intend to interfere. however, we firmly believe that all citizens of ukraine, i repeat, wherever they live should be given the same equal right to participate in the life of their country in determining its future. my friends, we are seeing justification for intervention and serious intervention in eastern ukraine. so he goes on to further questions, and then he goes on to take a shot at the united states, saying our partners, especially in the united states, always clearly formulate their own geopolitical and state interests and follow them with persistence, then using the principle -- quote
by russia's defense minister who said it has nothing to do with ukraine. it's russia's forces going through an u unannounced test, basically making sure that the army, the navy, and the air force can react to any perceived threats as quickly as they should be able to. now they did say that the black sea fleet, which is based in crimea in ukraine is being adequately protected, and the fleet is being bumped up a bit, which is probably what you would expect for any country with overseas military assets near a country going through a revolution at the moment. although they have said that the military drills have nothing to do with what is going on in ukraine, there are probably people who are very high up in the defense ministry and russian government as well who are thinking that reminding russia's neighbors and it's rivals of russian military might at a time when it's influence in central and eastern europe has taken a big dent recently is certainly no bad to do from a russian geopolitical perspective. >> getlet's go to tim friend who has the latest from kiev. we understand that it's a novel
's defense ministry, is part of the military drills that were began yesterday. nothing to do with what is going on in ukraine, according to the russian government. that is clearly not believed by the ukrainian interim government, which is concerned about the penalty of russian aggression. so concerned that it has warned russia that a movement of its fleet, based in crimea, would be seen by the ukrainian interim government as a sign of aggression, and the ukrainian foreign ministry summoned the russian-charged affair for immediate emergency consultation. russia at the moment does not have an ambassador in kiev because he was recalled to moscow. this is a signal of how tense things are at the moment. >> it must be tense because, as we well know, ukraine is absolutely vital to president putin - not just historically, but geopolitically as well. how does moscow regard what is happening in ukraine now, and keeping a close eye on crimea? >> yes, well it's not just the geopolitical importance of ukraine to russia that matters, it's the emotional importance. we have spoken to russians on the s
heard it again today from the russian defense minister. he maintained that no, there are no russian soldiers occupying crimea as it stands. they maintain this position that they say it is local self-defense teams, local militias, and we only know on the ground what we see and what our own cfn teams have seen. there's some local militias but undoubtedly russian soldiers. not wearing the insignia but heavily armed, driving armored vehicles, some of those vehicles have russian registration plates. very difficult to see how negotiations can proceed when the russian position is just that they have not begun any occupation of ukrainian territory. >> phil black in moscow. as we mentioned at the top of the hour, russia is due to take part in nato's discussion of the cries in ukraine. john kerry is due to meet with his russian counterpart. kerry lamented russian's absence ever his counterparts from great britain and ukraine. >> we have our friends from ukraine and great britain, partners in the budapest agreement of 1994. we're missing one member, hopefully meet this afternoon with that indi

of the damage they will incur themselves and that the self-defense forces in crimea, he's also been saying in the last couple of minutes, that russia too no part in training them. he said we are not considering annexing crimea. the latest line from this conference saying we are not considering annexing crimea. he has said that he believes that what happened in ukraine was unlawful, unconstitutional and a coup and not legitimate and that the only legitimate leader is the ousted president viktor yanukovych. he said he is hoping to avoid any force in eastern ukraine. president putin has gone on to say russia will not provoke separatists moves in crimea. but he says russia does reserve the right to protect any russians who are under threat within ukraine. so not entirely clear how this is actually going to manifest on the ground. as you can see, a number of journalists with president putin in moscow. i'm afraid we have no translation, so we can't bring you this directly. but there are a number of lines coming out. i'll give you more that we are getting from moscow. local forces of self-defense
and civilian parts and also it belongs to the ukrainian defense ministry. the bbc's christian frazier has tried to get into the sevatopol international airport. >> reporter: you might be able to see behind me the control tower and what looks like a military base. you can see there are barriers stopping anyone from entering. a couple hundred yards on, a very professional looking unit. they are carrying high-powered assault rifles, kevlar hell mats. they have not been down the road to meet us or talk to us, so we don't know who they are. quite clearly we're not allowed to go beyond this point. let me show you what is in front of the barriers. this is really what you would call a civilian guard. we spoke to this man here. he is a ukrainian who speaks russian. the flags flying on the road signs are russian sympathizers. they don't want to talk to us at all. they don't like the presence of the western media here. what we are seeing is a patent on our journey. we came through a roadblock last night. quite a significant roadblock. they were stopping all cars coming to sevastopol. the parliament is sti
saying that russia should not invade the sovereign space of ukraine. we've heard defense secretary chuck hagel speaking for the united states in nato, saying this should be a time for caution and wise, diplomatic moves. but we have yet to hear, until now, from the president of the united states on this situation. president barack obama in the white house briefing room. >> over the last several days, the united states has been responding to events as they unfold in ukraine. throughout this crisis, we have been very clear about one fundamental principle, the ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future. together with our european allies, we have urged an end to the violence and encouraged ukrainians to pursue a course in which they stabilize their country, forge a broadbased government, and move to elections this spring. i also spoke several days ago with president putin, and my administration has been in daily communication with russian officials. we've made clear that they can be part of an international communities effort to support the stability and success of
and ukraine's defense minister says radical groups are planning new activities in ukraine. our in-depth coverage begins in the southeast of ukraine. in the capital of crimea. jennifer glasse, defense minister says there are operations what he calls radical forces in the works. what are you hearing? >> reporter: well, john, tonight in crimea, the air space is choafd closed. we see a lot of armed men around here in the last day. th started in the middle of the night last night taking over sevastopol airport which is a military airport, they look very well trained, no military insignia, no identifying marks on their vehicles either. military trucks moving on the roads of crimea, certainly from the capitol and sevastopol, that is the headquarters of russia's black sea neat. we can't identify -- fleet. whee can'we can't identify who , who they answer to or what they are doing here. the air space is now closed. we have had a movement of military vehicles on the roads and so a very worrying development here in crimea tonight. >> jennifer are they facing any push dk back on the grown? >

not russian soldiers but self defense forces. those same forces have been involved in this tense stand-off with ukrainian troops at an air base in crimea. warning shots were fired as the careeni ukrainians asked for access to their planes. >> standing by for us live in crimea. lawrence, pretty tense-looking stand-off there. tell us more about it >> reporter: well, yes, it was. in many ways, it was the exact opposite of what people have feared might happen overnight because these reports of the russians giving the careukraini until 5:00 o'clock local time to surrender or they were going to storm their basis. >> never happened. >> hasn't happened anywhere. in this one place and only in this one place, this troop of ukrainian sold soldiers tried to get in and they walked singing their national anthem and carrying the ukrainian and the soviet flag toward the russians. the translation, you can hear some of the soldiers being angry. in the background, the shots are fired over their heads. their commander at the front said, "stoy," be quiet. the russians said you are provoking us and they sai
, let's get right to defense secretary chuck hagel because there is an extraordinary optic out there. earlier today at nato headquarters in brussels secretary hagel issued a warning to moscow. and how many years has it been since a u.s. defense secretary had to do that? i want you to listen to what he had to say. >> i'm closely watching russia's military exercises along the ukrainian border, which they announced as you know yesterday. i expect russia to be transparent about these activities. and i urge them not to take any steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to m miscalculation during a very delicate time, a time of great tension. >> a direct warning from the u.s. to the russian military. so what is going on along that border? well, russian forces now on alert conducting those exercises. the big worry, wolf, is as they move closer to that border with ukraine, as they move around and exercise and train, if that is indeed what they are doing, they get closer to the border if, if, they were to get orders to move into ukraine. they are that much closer, they could move very quickl

reserves to himself the right to intervene militarily at any time anyplace in ukraine, not just in defense of rugs, but also in defense of ukraineens. that's essentially a cart blanche to invade any country. >> saying he reserves the right to protect his people as if ukraine is still part of the old soviet union. >> putin has never like so many other russian elites accepted the legitimacy of an independent ukraine and he as far as he's concerned doesn't even consider ukrainians to be a separate people. essentially, he's marching in to defend his own. he also said and this is absolutely shocking, that he is "not worried by war." no leader other than adolf hitler and perhaps the ruler of north korea would say that kind of thing in today's world. >> should we be worried about vladimir putin's mental capacities or are we seeing a situation where some suggest we are looking at a russian leader who is isolated and insulated and only speaks to people who tell him what he wants to hear? >> i think it's both. clearly he is insulated, isolated, although at the same time, do keep in mind the russian

that the pentagon and the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense right now are going through all the scenarios and the options for the use of force. clearly, it's premature for us to even talk about the use of force. however, it is a possible outcome and needs to be planned, and it is what i would describe very robust detail. so a lot of options are out there. clearly, the united states as a first order would have to have what's known as a command and control type capability so if a decision was made to apply force, it's going to be a joint force. all the services and the different combat and commands will be involved and it will require some element that will allow you to tie it all together. that's taking place right now in terms of discussions in what's known as warning orders, in order to posture us, to make sure we're prepared. but all this is premature because there are other elements of power that have to be addressed and have to be exhausted. if the united states has declared and determined that this is in their national interest to get involved in some way, or to simply allow this to
